  1. Photosynthetic microorganism-based consortia to capture carbon and build soil organic matter

    SBC: MOGENE GREEN CHEMICALS, LC            Topic: G

    MOgene Green Chemicals will develop a novel photosynthetic microorganism-based consortia to capture carbon and build soil organic matter. Intensive agriculture practices, including the removal of residual crops, use of synthetic fertilizer and herbicides, and tillage practices, have led to lost organic matter, increased greenhouse gas emissions, and reduced capacity of the soil to store carbon. If ...

  2. Advanced Catalyst Manufacturing Enabled by Direct Joule Heating

    SBC: HIGHT-TECH LLC            Topic: G

    Ammonia synthesis reactions, enabled by the Haber-Bosch process, account for approximately 3% of the world’s total energy use. Here, we propose a cascade reactor with a sequence of catalyst compositions which are tailored to a specific stage of the synthesis reaction. The various catalyst compositions are enabled by our novel, direct joule heating process for synthesizing high entropy alloy nano ...

  4. Developing a Fast Gas Delivery System for Spectrokinetic Measurements

    SBC: Mithra Technologies Inc            Topic: 17c

    Catalytic technology plays a key role in protecting our environment and providing the fertilizer, fuels, pharmaceuticals and chemicals needed to make the consumer goods that support a prosperous society. The manufacture of essential molecules such as ammonia and ethylene are enormously energy intensive but advanced catalytic materials and processes can enable energy efficiency. A key challenge in ...

  5. NUMERICAL MODEL DEVELOPMENT FOR SUPERCRITICAL CO2 OXY-COMBUSTION

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: 22d

    Supercritical CO2 (sCO2) power cycles operate at high pressures (300 bar) and high inlet temperatures (700°C), with the promise of higher efficiency and the potential to foster sequestration of CO2. Current plans are to operate these devices using natural gas or syngas, burning with oxygen at fairly low combustion temperatures (1100 °C). However, there are gaps in the understanding of oxy-fuel c ...

  6. High-Aspect-Ratio Diamond Refractive Optics

    SBC: Modern Microsystems, Inc.            Topic: 05b

    Modern synchrotron x-ray sources provide a useful photon brilliance in excess of 1018 photons⁄s⁄0.1%BW⁄mrad2⁄mm, but they also deposit power densities on the order of 100 W⁄mm2 on the beamline optics. X-ray optics are required that provide the greatest possible focusing power while managing the associated heat flux. The exceptional x-ray optical properties and extreme thermal conductivit ...

  7. Model-Based Application of NIST Cybersecurity Standards

    SBC: WW TECHNOLOGY GROUP, INC            Topic: 90

    The proposed innovation will use a model-based approach to streamline understanding and application of standards. NIST standards addressing cybersecurity, presented in the form of documents, spreadsheets, and database tools, provide thousands of complimentary and overlapping items for users to track. Significant effort is expended understanding the standards before attention can be focused on the ...

  8. ENT:Extended Nestor Tagging

    SBC: RedShred, LLC            Topic: 90

    In order for manufacturers to adopt data-driven decision making, they must tap into unstructured data that sits unused. The process of annotation and knowledge extraction from unstructured text data is a time consuming and challenging bottleneck to adopting machine learning at scale.  This Phase I SBIR proposes implementation of an enhanced cloud-based platform enabling maintenance and other orga ...

  9. Commercialization of NIST Technology for Separating Particles with Light

    SBC: PARMAN TECH, LLC            Topic: 90

    Parman Tech will build a first prototype embodying the NIST-owned technology ‘Optical Particle Sorter.’ The prototype will demonstrate feasibility of a commercial implementation of this technology. The prototype will also serve as the model for subsequent production of several beta-units to be used for obtaining customer feedback and eventually validation of the product.

  10. Numerical Model Development For Supercritical CO2 Oxy-Combustion

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: 22d

    Supercritical CO2 (sCO2) power cycles operate at high pressures (300 bar) and high inlet temperatures (700°C), placing the CO2 well above the critical point. Current plans are to operate these devices using natural gas or syngas, burning with oxygen at fairly low combustion temperatures (1100 °C). However, there are gaps in the understanding of oxy-fuel combustion with CO2 under supercritical co ...
